down which is the big fight here. whether it's in education reform or transportation reform or pension reform. we have brought labor to the table. they've been a part of the solution and i think thank them for that. >> schieffer: i must apologize. the sound dropped out. did you tell me you are going to sign it or not? >> i've got... can you hear me now, bob? >> schieffer: yes, i can. >> i've got about ten days to review the whole budget. you're asking i think in particular about the municipal health care part of it. it has come a long way toward what i want. i think there are a couple of parts of it i want to look at it more closely before i make a final decision. the broader point i was making, bob, is that, for all of the reforms we have been doing-- many of them like what my colleagues and other states have been doing-- taking this opportunity to make government work better and focus more on the people served, we've had labor at the table. they've been a great part of it. >> schieffer: all right. let me go to the mayor. mr. mayor, you're not in charge of state budgets, obvio
